well, I enjoyed it...
4 March 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

So its another pretentious art / exploitation film from Jean Rollin.

I still found lots to enjoy. From the wonderful locations to the beautiful women. Its story does not make that much sense, but thats part of the charm of these films. Given the right budget and script I always thought Rollin could make a brilliant film. As it is this is full of brilliant imagery.

The script is not up to much but fan of Euro horror will love. It should not be ignored and is probably better than anything coming out of Hollywood at the moment...

So why not give something different a go.
